Hi Keiron, I know of this changes ... BTW the stuff that I'd like to see maintained into the new area tree is a reference to the FO that generate the area (generatedBy methond) and the same for the page-sequences and pages. I guess that at the moment will be better for FOA to distribute a "customized" version of FOP and then, when the new area tree is ready I will write the new XMLPrintRenderer.
